I've stayed in the Gresham before and it's been comfortable but not exceptional and this was my experience again.
The room and general environs are clean - spotless actually: I had the club sandwich for supper and it was really lovely and the waiter working the lobby was friendly and efficient. My main problem was the noise, which came from two separate sources. The first was the service lift, I was in room 300 and it was right beside a service lift that creaked and slithered up and down its cable all night accompanied with the opening and closing of doors that sounded like Hammer Horror side effects. The second source was the street noise, I had a front facing room which was lovely for the view over O'Connell Street but the noise was shocking, it was also a bit chilly. It's testament to the comfortable bed and linens that I managed to salvage about 5 hrs sleep. Breakfast was fine - I'm just a coffee and toast person so I don't get much insight into breakfast unless the service is horrendous. The wifi was free but the parking was 12.50 overnight and the car park is slightly inconvenient to get to.
I would stay here again but I would ask for a quiet room away from the service lift and you need to balance your need for a view with your tolerance of street noise.
